Best of Masters: Maggie Varney

Maggie Varney has been in the beauty industry for 40 years and a successful business owner and entrepreneur for 24 years. She is the president and owner of the environmentally friendly Go Green Salon and the founder and CEO of Wigs 4 Kids, a nonprofit organization that provides wigs, education, and support to children who struggle with hair loss.

In 2010, the Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon opened to further assist Michigan’s children by offering emotional, psychological, and social support in an affirming setting. Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Maggie shares her passion for Wigs 4 Kids. “Maggie Varney is a saint in my world! I wish her MASTERS interview was on video so you could see her beautiful face as she talks about kids with cancer and the humble role she plays in providing them with dignity. If you've ever felt that your life needs more purpose, Maggie will be your guide.” – Winn Claybaugh
